Venting Your Cowl


For those desiring greater comfort, a more fiendish and meaning-business look, and who are heretical enough to innovate beyond movie and comic orthodoxy, here are some cowl venting tips.

1. Draw vent openings with a fine, black felt-tip pen. Follow cowl contours.

2. Vents should be 1/2" to 3/4" long x 3/16" wide (i.e., not wide enough for.22" caliber bullets, for armored cowls).

3. Leave at least 1/2" of uncut space between vents for proper strength and cowl shape.

4. Use sharp cuticle scissors to cut vents, thrusting one blade through, then cutting.

5. For thick cowls, use an Exacto knife with a right-angle blade to first punch through.

6. Some say cut with a Dremel rotary blade, but I've not tried that.

That's a great idea. I can use some air in some of mine. I will have to try that.

Okay, I made a post there for BOTB, but didn't see any voting mechanics. Did I vote?

Neet idea for the cowl venting Zane. Very innovative. I also liked the slits you did in the back of your other cowl that look like gills.

As far as voting, at the start of the thread in Liam's link is a list of names of the boards you can vote for. The BOTB is selection # 2.
